Tip: It is always a good policy to come to court prepared. Having the court notice in court is advisable. It will help the court ascertain the most important information about your case quickly.
Trial: Each motorist is entitled to a trial on his or her traffic matter. Generally, a traffic trial will occur on the driver’s first court appearance. The first court appearance is usually known as a pre-trial conference.Points and Fine Information
The amount of points a driver receives is with respect to how many miles per hour they were speeding over the speed limit. The following chart gives an overview on it:
01 to 10 mph over the limit
11 to 20
21 to 30
31 to 40
More than 40
Please be aware that points will affect a driver’s privilege to drive for 18 months from the date in which the ticket was issued. In other words, the points do not run from the date of the conviction; they run from the moment the officer issues a summons.
An average speeding conviction of 76 mph on a 55 mph speed limit can usually face a fine up to about $400.00, a $300.00 fine payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles, and an additional few hundred dollars in insurance increases.
Please note, that insurance increases may vary. Two very similar situated drivers can have different insurance increases; this is because there are other factors that insurance companies take account to. For example, the driver’s age, the type of car that is driven, as well as the car accident history.About Our Firm
